The super priority visa service, which was announced by the Prime Minister on his recent visit to India, has been designed with frequent and valued business travellers in mind.

Immigration Minister Mark Harper said:
This government is committed to encouraging international business to invest in Britain.
India and Britain have a long history of trade and we run our largest visa operation in the world there. We are delighted to be able to launch our first same day visa service in Delhi and Mumbai, and make our world class visa service even better.
The super priority visa is the first of its kind to be launched by the Home Office and the service will cost £600 in addition to the price of the visa. There are plans to expand the scheme to Chennai in the next few weeks.
